Everyone’s favorite practically perfect nanny, Mary Poppins, takes the stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure. Jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduce us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she teaches the family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones fall under her charming spell. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises, “Anything can happen if you let it.”
